Keep it local this Christmas

I love local and have started being a little more conscientious about supporting local businesses, big and small, as they all provide jobs to many. But when shopping locally this year, why not think about Irish products?

Makeup

How many times have I sought a handbag sized palette for myself that had contour and blusher, that was compact and was a good all-rounder?

It would take a Corkwoman to make it and Lisa Jordan has absolutely nailed it. Luna by Lisa has just launched a gorgeous palette containing four stunning shades that are packaged in a gorgeous gift worthy rose gold case.

The Pearl & Glow Face Palette includes gemstone contour, a cool and creamy powder. With gemstone contour, you can enhance your natural dimensions to create show-stopping definition. This is not muddy or too orange - it has just the right amount of warmth.

The diamond highlighter is an intense highlighter designed to suit all skin types. Enhance your cheekbones and use a light fan brush for day and a fluffy denser one by night.

The moonlight blush is the ideal youth-enhancing blusher with just the right combination of pigment and blend power while the crystal eye lighter adds a little extra pop to your favourite makeup looks. The eyes look bigger, brighter and enhanced.

Bodycare

Green Angel is a well-established brand that has been on my radar for a while. I often buy it as a gift as the products not only smell sumptuous but also are wonderfully packaged.

Body care is always a good option as a gift, as you don’t need to necessarily know the person's skin type to gift it to them.

Green Angel Seaweed and Essential Oil Foot Cream is a beautiful pedicure treatment which contains Irish seaweed and is combined with the very refreshing peppermint oil and the soothing antiseptic tea tree essential oil to refresh and pamper your feet after a long week.

You could also include some Green Angel seaweed and lavender hand cream with vitamin E has won numerous awards for is therapeutic and soothing benefits.

This luxurious hand cream nourishes your hands with enriched minerals from the sea combined with added mandarin and neroli (one of my all-time favourite scents) essential oils and the added protection of vitamin E which is a very good healing oil especially for drier hands. They retail at €21 each and are packaged so nicely.

Pestle & Mortar is a skincare brand that is going from strength to strength. They only launch a couple of products each year but never get it wrong.

The Pestle & Mortar All I want for Christmas set comprises a combination of products that combat dullness, reduce fine lines, calm the complexion and maintain optimum skin hydration including balance facial spritz, recover eye cream, pure hyaluronic serum and hydrate lightweight moisturiser.

Brushes

Nima Brush are the main brushes in my collection at the moment, mainly because they offer great value and quality. The Basics Set contains seven brushes to cater for all areas of the face from foundation application to that perfect smoky eye to perfectly defined brows. The ultimate Basic set is for anybody starting out with makeup or for a busy life on the go. For €50, it contains seven brushes for face and eyes which work at less than €8 per brush.
